Screenshot Method

The Screenshot Method is one of the most straightforward methods to verify wallet ownership. 

The self-hosted wallet owner will take a screenshot of their wallet software displaying the withdrawal address.  This screenshot will be uploaded or sent to the virtual asset service provider (VASP), also known as a crypto service provider (CASP), for the compliance team to review.

The transaction will be approved if the address in the screenshot matches the desired withdrawal address. 

This process can also be done with a video instead of a screenshot. The process remains the same; the only difference is that the user will film their wallet software displaying the withdrawal address. 

Sometimes, this method may be referred to as a “snapshot” or "visual proof".
